Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

Now I get why RGIII hasn't signed. Just read this tweet that explains it all.


LL ‏@LL56_HTTR

@espn_nfceast @Redskins Griff isnt signing because he can spend more time at the park. Hes there 12-13 hours a day right now.#cbaloophole




Love this kid. Love our FO.

I'm sure there's someone here who wants to hop on the overreaction wagon.

Just look at one of the responses to the tweet, some jagoff predicts Cousins will win the starting job.

So does that mean that all the rookies that have signed are slackers?

let's not get to carried away with hype...

No, but none of those other rookies are slated to be starting at the most important position on the field either.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

I'm just saying, that none of the top 5 have signed, and we aren't even close to any type of deadline. Sure I am glad that the media has a positive reason, better that than, the kid is upset and wants #1 slot money. But, even if that was the real reason, we wouldn't know it till we get closer to the deadline. Right now it's all just spin and hype.

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

What is there to negotiate; aren't all rookie salaries all ready set due to where you were picked?

Re: Redskins rookie signing thread

RG3 may sign the type of deal similar to what Cam Newton signed last year. The Panthers gave Newton a basic 22 million dollar guaranteed contract. I can see the Redskins giving Griffin III a deal similar with added incentives.

Yes. Once Luck signs (and there are reports that he is close), the rest will fall like dominos. The days of worrying about a holdout of your top pick are over, barring idiot players and agents.

I thought the basic contract was set from where he was drafted and the only thing that can be negotiated was bonuses and performance type stuff. Cam was signed before the new deal was done.

I might purchase RG3's jersey from that website myself.
